In all the years I’ve been here I had yet to do a session among the cherry blossoms at Red Wing Park. We had so much fun making little “R” squeal with the raining blossoms. And I adore her blonde curls.
They were here for just a short stay. I had such a wonderful time with them on them on the beach though. It was one of our crazy weather days where every forecast is calling for rain and then it clears at the last minute. We had the most amazing overcast light for their session.
This vision started with a mirror. A friend’s mirror that I kindly asked her to trek through the mud with it. She brought along her great-grandmother’s umbrella and I squealed when I looked at this test frame…
And then we let the girls have fun in a field with gorgeous golden light.

I just realized that I have never shared this child portrait session with my gorgeous niece. You’ve likely seen a few of these pictures but I love stepping away from a session and returning to it with a fresh pair of eyes. Some of these I had yet to edit until now. The dress was handmade by my Mom. I have a few that she has made for me if anyone has a little girl and wants to use one for your session! I miss you baby girl!
A dancer and a girl who loves to dress up. What more could a photographer ask for?! I met this vacationing family between the rainstorms at an inlet beach. I still can’t get over how beautiful they are together. I wanted to be sure to capture the girls as their momma remembers them… at this moment, at this age. I loved that the girls changed. E so she could dance on the beach and O so she could prance and curtsey, and dig in the sand.
I met this vacationing family for an early morning session at Sandbridge beach. A horseshoe crab shell intrigued the little ones and I had such a fun time teaching little “A” how to run from the waves. Thank you to this wonderful family for allowing me to capture a portion of your stay. Here is a quick sneak peek for you while you enjoy the rest of your vacation!
I was so excited to come across this weeks featured inspired wall gallery. I have a similar wall in my entryway that I would love to do this too! Kate at Centsational Girl has a completely awesome DIY project that adds storage and a functional gallery ledge and wall to display your family portraits.
And to think she started with this all too familiar looking wall!
Thinking of taking on this project for yourself? You can find her detailed directions here!
